Re: Does Nintendo hate money?

Let me present a different perspective. I'm not sure if I fully believe the perspective I'm about to throw out, but it may have some truth. Plus, the "Nintendo is dumb" perspective has been well represented here, so let me play the "Nintendo is smart" side for a moment: Many of ...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

While I agree that pre-orders have been a mess, and Nintendo certainly doesn't deserve any benefits of the doubt at this point, I still think it's best to pump the brakes and see how the actual September 29th release goes. I'm not optimistic about it, but still, I won't judge the whole SNES Classic ...

Re: SNES Classic Announced

Amazon used a different page for the preorders, which is why no one got alerts. I thought I had an alert set up with Best Buy, but didn't get that either. Walmart went online for pre-orders at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. I was lucky to see it happen... but it sold out within 2 minutes.. faster than I co...

Re: New arcade machine

I'm thinking Space Invaders makes the most sense, considering the hint of "major arcade hit"..I feel like we've guessed the other space games with unique controls that were major hits. But the VGC hasn't confirmed that yet, so just to throw out another guess, how about Space Duel? It's sim...

Re: New arcade machine

I know it's got no chance, but as an off the wall guess, I'm gonna throw Paperboy out there too (with its unique handle bar controller). It was the very first machine that popped in my head when I read this topic, but I immediately scoffed at the thought as being too unlikely. Now, with Dave suddenl...

Re: Nokia N-Gage/Tapwave Zodiacs it the Sega 32X/3DO/Atari Jaguar of portable gaming?

Like scotland, I'm a bit confused on the premise. But I will say this... as a console collector, I have a strange affinity for the failed systems of the 90s - like 3DO, Jaguar, and CD-i. And I get that same good vibe when collecting for the N-Gage and Zodiac.. they are very much the handheld equival...

Re: New arcade machine

I like the new guesses, especially Warlords and Robotron, both of which I recall Dave being a huge fan of. With arcade machines, they are such space hogs that I feel like priority #1 when buying one is ensuring that you'll love it and get a ton of use out of it. So the latest guesses would fit that ...

Re: Limited Run Games

I hope you get a chance to review Night Trap very soon. I'm curious whether I missed out... I had been going back and forth about whether to get this PS4 re-release. I've been playing the 32X version recently with my girlfriend, so I got her input. I touted the improved FMV quality as a big reason t...

Re: New arcade machine

I'd usually guess something like Ms. Pac-Man or Galaga. But based on your clue -- which I'm going to (mis) interpret to mean non-traditional controls (i.e., not a standard joystick) -- I'll go with Asteroids.

Re: 2017/8/5: Playstation: Tomorrow Never Dies, Danger Girl

I remember there was a lot of hype for Tomorrow Never Dies since it was the next Bond game after GoldenEye. Some of my friends thought it would be the PlayStations answer to GoldenEye. They wound up very disappoint. Lol Yeah, that review gave me the same flashback... In the late 90's, I was a Plays...
